(Update as of 5/22/20) The National Park Service announced plans for re-opening Yellowstone.  More information can be found here.

These are unprecedented times with the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The health and safety of our guests and employees are our top priorities. We have been closely monitoring the guidance and recommendations of public health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) as well as federal, state, and local governments.

The opening of Xanterra operations in Yellowstone National Park (lodges, campgrounds, dining, and tours) has been contingent upon when and how Yellowstone National Park re-opens. With the announcement of the re-opening of the park, and within the parameters of current public health and NPS guidelines, we are now planning to begin a phased approach to opening our operations on a limited basis. We recommend that our guests wear facial coverings in public spaces.

This decision was not easy and we recognize the significant impact on your travel plans, but we know that this is the responsible path forward to continue to help slow the spread of the disease. Please see below for more details*.
